Born Camilo Echeverry Correa in Medellin in 1994, he and his sister, Manuela Echeverry, formed a musical team as teenagers; they tried out for XS Factor, but failed to reach the end of the competition. He returned the following year as a solo artist and won, setting in motion his debut album, Regálame Tu Corazón. Radio and video paid attention, but the effort didn't chart. In 2008, he made further TV appearances on the RCN Channel's Super Pá and in the telenovela En Los Tacones de Eva. Also in 2008, he began making regular appearances on the children's television program Bichos, where he remained until 2009, when went on tour in Colombia and the United States. In 2010, he released his Sony follow-up, Tráfico de Sentimientos, that hit inside the Top Ten in Colombia; it also charted in Peru as well as other South American countries. Camilo returned to Bichos (by then renamed Tu Planeta Bichos), and was selected as a presenter on the 2011 XS Factor. In 2013 he cut the non-charting single "Déjame Quererte Hoy," and the following year he retired from Tu Planeta Bichos. In 2018, he returned as a songwriter, penning hits for Bomba Estereo and Mau y Ricky. He also penned "Paleta de Ha-Ash" and "Cuidao" for Yandel and Natti Natasha. He collaborated with Mau y Ricky and Manuel Turizo on the hit "Desconocidos," and launched his own single, "Japonesa." Camilo also wrote "Pa Dentro" for Juanes.
In 2019, Camilo was in demand. He penned "En Guerra" for Sebastian Yatra and appeared on the track, following it with his own platinum-certified single "N Te Vayas." After writing and recording the triple-platinum single "Me Boca" as a featured guest of Mau y Ricky, he enlisted Pedro Capo to work with him on the single "Tutu." It topped the chart in Mexico and peaked at number two on the U.S. Latin Pop Songs in the U.S.; it was also certified platinum. A remix of the track with Shakira also charted and was followed by the collaborative single "Boomshakalaka" with Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Afro Bros, Sebastián Yatra, and Emilia. At year's end, the charting single "Primer Avión" (featuring Matisse) and "La Difícil" appeared from Sony Music Latin under his own name in advance of his third long-player, due in 2020. ~ Thom Jurek
